Are you an Albion College first year student looking to be a part of the Student Research Partners program? Dr. Cahill is looking to take on an SRP in Fall 2017, so check out the link and read the project description!
For other Albion College students, opportunities are available to work with a variety of invertebrates, terrestrial and marine. You will have the chance to do a number of different tasks, ranging from field ecology to molecular population genetics.
If you are interested in working in Dr. Cahill’s lab, send her an email (acahill [at] albion.edu), or come talk to her in person. You should bring a list of biology classes you have taken or are taking and a brief statement of why you are interested in working in her research lab.
Potential funding for working in the lab, both over the summer and during the academic year, is available from Albion’s FURSCA program.
She has mentored students since 2011, both as integral parts of her research and on semi-independent projects. Five students presented posters at the undergraduate research symposium at Stony Brook University (URECA). Three mentees are coauthors on a peer-reviewed publication resulting from their independent projects.
